How A Strange Cooking Show With Snoop Dogg And Martha Stewart Became A Surprise Tv Hit

Story:

Martha Stewart has had a lot of success with her catch phrase “It’s a good thing”. In reviewing Bailey Edward’s 2017 activities, events and accomplishments, my inner voice kept repeating this phrase which became not such a good thing. I needed a good thing to break the endless cycle. Therefore, I turned to Martha’s tv co-host, Snoop Dogg, for inspiration. Now we are rapping our way through the 2017 Bailey Edward good things.

It’s a Good Thing - Ellen Bailey Dickson

“It’s a good thing,
To do the good thing.
17, was a good thing.

Callin’ it good
‘Cuz we did so much in our ‘hood.
Savin’ buildings in Chicago and Champaign,
Preservation uses our brain
In the parks, for the courts, at the schools,
Savin’ Englewood, very cools.

It’s a good thing,
To do the good thing.
17, was a good thing.

Engineerin’, drawin’, and designin’
On classrooms, labs, and clinics, we’re refinin’.
Makin’ homes for Black Hawk copters
Givin’ soldiers their deserved propers.
Gettin’ awards for good service and design
And keepin’ the business alive for 25.

It’s a good thing,
To do the good thing.
17, was a good thing.

People talked, people acted.
People served, people enacted.
Givin’ back with words and deeds,
BE was in the news feeds.
Wrappin’ for Habitat, feedin’ the homeless
Makin’ housing affordable, that’s the noblest.

Sendin’ the good message about our peeps to our peeps
It’s a good thing,
To do the good thing.
17, was a good thing.
18, will be a good thing!

Okay, so maybe I will stick to designing and creating good buildings and let Snoop Dogg do the rapping. If you want to connect the rap to our actual 2017 good things, check out our News and Observations section at www.baileyedward.com.

Thanks for being a part of our good thing!
